[newforms-admin] Creating an edit_inline feature for newforms admin

The basic premise is that we should have an edit_inline_like functionality for newforms-admin.

Rather than discussing this in the wiki or on the groups, I think having a ticket to track ideas would be useful to see this idea come to fruition.
Please see discussions on Google Groups ( for more information.

Personally, I think it would be useful to add this functionality to newforms itself, rather than to put it in the admin only.

This would make it possible to easily create forms outside of the admin which contain related objects.

Furthermore, it would be nice if you could nest forms more than one level deep. So you could edit related objects for related objects.

From comments in the google groups discussion, it appears that progress has started on this as django.newforms.formsets in the newforms-admin branch.
